Hi everyone,

EDIT : Ok I see my question is not very clear. So when the user makes a zoom on the map, and that the software doesn't have any image for this zoom level, many squares appear. And in these squares you are told "Exception : no data in local tile cache", "we are sorry..".

To make this part a bit more sexy, I would like to change the background color, the texts and the fonts. I need to access the text because I have to translate it regarding the culture.

I'm developing under .NET 4 and WPF.

Thank you. Can you tell me how to access these properties ? I've discovered GMAP.NET yesterday in the afternoon (and I've looked for the doc but haven't found yet)

instructions for dummies: you write mapControl1 then hit . and then choose one of the property ;/

Had to access the mapControl first. Not easy when you just have "this" in your init ;)

(but I found it anyway)

Ok it's almost done. I just want to act on the advertisment "Exception : no data in local tile cache". Removing or changing it will be all right.

(I think it must be a FormattedText but there is only EmptyTileText in gmapControl)

UP because I still haven't found (holidays make you waste so much time...)

that particular exception is internal, check the source if you want to modify it..

Thank you. Do you remember the location of the exception ?

ant the very bottom of GMaps.cs

Thanks for your answer, I hadn't seen it. Anyway I don't find GMaps.cs in my project (Version 1.3). I checked every project without finding it. And if I search "Exception : no data in local tile cache", even with truncated expression, VS returns no result.
